  1. Thank you for you question Our local practice is to use Hypergel, a product with 20% sodium chloride; or you can try a recipe with salt and vinegar soaking. Preparing Vinegar Solution : Prepare vinegar solution in a clean bottle. Add six (6) ounces (3/4 cup) boiled or bottled water. Add four (4) ounces (1/2 cup) white vinegar. Add two (2) teaspoons of table salt. Shake until dissolved. Pour into clean spray or squirt bottle. Date the bottle with the date prepared. v NOTE: DO NOT store the vinegar solution for more than one week. Discard any unused portion at the end date and make a fresh solution
